Praise for Meghan Tifft's The Long Fire
"Equal parts funny, bizarre, and emotionally resonant, Meghan Tiffts' beautifully written and wholly original debut novel tells the wild tale of a woman who will put anything in her mouth. I devoured it." --Seth Greenland, author of Shining City and I Regret Everything
"The Long Fire's protagonist fills her body with paper and plastic while grasping for solidity and structure after the disintegration of her family. Tifft explores the brutality of blood relationships with feeling, precision, and wonderfully textured prose." --Steph Cha, author of the Juniper Song Mysteries
"Meghan Tifft's auspicious first novel is gripping and beautifully written, both whimsical and wrenching. 'It reminded me of a book I ate once, ' the protagonist says of her parents' lives. The Long Fire will remind you of nothing else." --Laurence Klavan, author of The Family Unit and Other Fantasies
"Curious, grim, electric, shadowy, mesmerizing--all words that describe The Long Fire. Natalie is the strangest and most compelling unwilling detective that I've come across in a long time." --Jill Kelly, author of When Your Mother Doesn't and Fog of Dead Souls
"The Long Fire is a beautifully written meditation on who we really are and where we come from. Part mystery, part family drama, Meghan Tifft's novel is filled with stunning hypnotic prose and a cast of highly original, quirky characters I will not soon forget." -- Jillian Cantor, author of Margot
"A debut novel about a strangely appealing heroine whose lonely search for understanding plunges her into the dark weirdness of her family unusual, strikingly written novel about a young woman's desire for understanding and love and how that longing remains familiar in even the most eccentric of circumstances." --Kirkus Reviews
"A solid debut effort that won't leave a bad taste in your mouth." -- Heather Scott Partington, Las Vegas Weekly
"Natalie is an engaging, unforgettable character, courageous in confronting the uncertainties of her life, wry and compassionate. Like so many novels in which characters embark on a quest, they are really searching for and most likely to find themselves. This is a literary mystery, not bound by the typical mystery/thriller conventions and, paradoxically, therefore, more revealing."--Victoria Weisfeld, Crime Fiction Lover
"Tifft delivers the literary equivalent of a fever dream, complete with baroque prose, stream-of-consciousness storytelling, and alternating first-person, present-tense narratives... the tale feels a bit like a play, itself--something on the order of Our Town meets Waiting for Godot as imagined by David Lynch. Questions go unanswered and mysteries go unsolved, but then, that rather seems Tifft's point. An entertaining if inscrutable meditation on identity and the performative nature of existence." --Kirkus Reviews
"A Pirandellian farce that owes more to David Lynch than Anne Rice, Tifft's bizarre, captivating second novel (after THE LONG FIRE) depicts the perilous relationship between a young woman and a man who claims to be Dracula... This is a sharp, head-spinning story about two lovers desperately seeking nourishment." --Publishers Weekly
